Death: the termination of the biological functions that define a living organism.
Since I was a little girl I’ve felt your presence; family and friends, have been embraced by you.People fear you, but I always had a special devotion for you.

Time went by and you did not stop your profession, you were everywhere, day and night finding your victims. You hadbecome part of my life, and one of my biggest fears.
